Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): 1, unknown shape due to distance, possible circular. Looked like a meteor.

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: Far enough to be a shooting star

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Headed south, lowered altitude, changed directions to north, then accelerated south again.

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): None

Further Description of Sighting: I was at the bus stop at UC santa Cruz with now husband, then boyfriend. It was evening possible around 9 pm. We were at Porter college which as we were high up on the campus, you can almost see toward the ocean.

I was looking at the stars and saw a “shooting star”, except it was changing colors. And it wasn’t really descending as it should it began to head south.

At first I thought the colors may have been a result of atmospheric lights, humidity , or simply the burning up of gases as it came into our atmosphere. But , I got my partner’s attention. We questioned that it was a plane or satellite.

It continued to change colors and speed and directions. We were both perplexed and yes, sober! It zigzagged a bit leaving trails of color, I remember seeing orange a blue like mini contrails.

After it had changed direction it shot off to the left (south) again and disappeared with its orange tail fading into the night. The whole time I was shouting.” Do you see this?” Are we both seeing this?”.

I never saw it again and nothing like it . I know there is a military base up the mountains past the campus and wrote it off as something they must’ve been doing. It was fast like satellite but I think too high up to be military!

The direction change and disappearance is what really made me wonder. We still talk about it today years later and decided to share.
